What inspired Hemalurgy?
Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]
So Hemalurgy was probably - it's hard for me to say, because it's been fifteen years, but I think I started with the image of the Inquisitors with spikes in their eyes. At the same time I was trying to work up a third magic system to go in the trilogy so I could have one magic, two magic, three magic, and I wanted one that was super creepy and evil. And I built it around those two ideas.
